"We are very encouraged by the bipartisan support seen for the revitalized work of the Gang of Six, the return of Senator Tom Coburn to the fold, and growing interest on the Hill in developing a 'grand bargain' bipartisan plan to put our nation on a solid path towards fiscal responsibility and reform. These six Senators -- who have worked tirelessly over more than 7 months to agree on a long-term debt reduction plan based on the recommendations of the Fiscal Commission -- have shown tremendous courage, leadership, and determination in putting the national interest ahead of partisan interests. We hope that their colleagues in the House and Senate follow their leadership in pushing for a bold, bipartisan plan to bring our debt under control."

As Co-Chairmen of the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform, we spent most of 2010 studying the cold, hard facts concerning our nation’s fiscal situation. Every member of our Commission came to the same unavoidable conclusions: The fiscal problems our nation faces are real. The solutions will be painful. There is no easy way out. Everything must be on the table. And Washington must lead.
